Texas French Toast

I have already posted a recipe for French toast. This one uses Texas toast slices for the bread. It is made slightly different then my previous post.

Ingredients:
3 eggs
4 slices of Texas toast
1/4 cup half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 cinnamon for dusting
your favorite topping

Begin by whisking the eggs and half and half. When well mixed, add the vanilla extract.
Place the bread in a toaster oven for about a minute. You don't want to toast it, just slightly dry it out. This will help it hold together. Add the bread on slice at a time, coating both sides.


Lightly dust your dredged bread with cinnamon. Preheat griddle for several minutes. The pan is ready when a drop of water dances on the surface. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and continue with the rest of the slices.  Add for favorite toppings and enjoy.






Butternut Squash Lasagna

The holidays are a difficult time if you are dieting. My wife saw a recipe for a low-carb lasagna in a magazine, and asked me to make it. I read it and thought, it just wasn't lasagna. I went through the pantry looking for ingredients that would create a healthy and delicious meal.
There are two ways to make the noodles. You can slice them by hand, or you can do it the way I do, with a vegetable sheet cutter on my KitchenAid mixer. Once you get the hang of using the sheeter, it's a breeze to slice long ribbons of vegetables that can be sliced to your desired length.



Ingredients:
8 to 12 sheets or slices of butternut squash
2 cups fresh spinach
1 can spaghetti sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
4 cups fat free mozzarella shredded cheese
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup diced black olives
1 cup finely diced butternut squash
1 teaspoon olive oil
cooking spray

 Begin by cutting your "noodles". Next in a preheated pan, ad…
